The Under 21 side will play Estonia in a two leg preliminary match to advance to the group stage of the 2006/2007 UEFA Under 21 Championship.

If Brian Flynnís side progress they will be play in Group 13, against Turkey and Israel in a three team group with the group winners progressing. Matches in the preliminary round must be played before 15 July 2006. Group stage matches are scheduled for 16 August, 2/3 September and 5/6 September.

The first game will be in Estonia, followed by the return a few days later. Under 21 manager Brian Flynn said:
"The draw could have been a lot worse. We have recently played the Estonian Under 17's, so we know a little about the way they set-up. In addition, the travelling will not be too difficult to Tallinn, so all in all, I am quite happy with the draw. My preference would be to play the matches around the second week in May, but that will resolved by negotiations in the next week or so. It is vital that we qualify, because otherwise we would have a whole season of non-competitive games next year and that cannot be a good thing'."

The winners from the play-off will play Israel (Away) and Turkey (Home) in next season's qualifying matches. The tournament is over just the one season initially.
